Jimbo Fisher departs FSU for Texas A&M job

Jimbo Fisher is leaving Florida State for Texas A&M, four years after leading the Seminoles to their third national title.

Fisher agreed to a guaranteed 10-year, $75 million deal to coach at Texas A&M.

Fisher said Thursday that he intends to coach the Seminoles (5-6) in their final regular-season game Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe.

FSU President John Thrasher announced Fisher's resignation Friday afternoon.

Fisher won the BCS National Championship in 2013 with the Seminoles and was 83-23 in eight seasons as their head coach. Coach Fisher did an exceptional job as both an assistant coach at FSU and in the challenging role of successor to the legendary Bobby Bowden.

Fisher's connection to Texas A&M comes in the form of Scott Woodward, who knows Fisher from their days at LSU. Florida State also needs a win on Saturday and in a bowl game to avoid its first losing season since 1976.

Well, she definitely did not hint at her pregnancy by mentioning "babies" in her post as fans would have assumed. As Radar previously reported , selfie-queen Jenner just can't come to grips with her expanding body.

The Aggies went hard after Fisher following the firing of Kevin Sumlin, who went 51-26 in six seasons with the program. "I've been waiting to come to this school and it's like really upsetting". "We just want him to win a national championship".

Student Alexis Taylor said, "I hope that we can get better coaches". But Francois clearly would have preferred his head coach to have said something. And I guess we'll see [Fisher] next year, if that's what he's going to do.

I would tell our supporters and fans the same thing that I told our team: we will hire a head coach that will lead Florida State to ACC and National Championships; one who will maintain our commitment to academic excellence; and one who will make you proud to be a Seminole.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney: "Evidently he feels like that's the right move for him and his family and the right time to do so".

Florida State had the running game going as they totaled 302 yards between Jacques Patrick and Cam Akers.
